A couple of days back, Fena Gitu aka Fena Menal took to her social media account to post a celebratory birthday message for her “bunny” and the internets went wild!
Her fans and detractors alike came out to give their opinions on the matter and I was admittedly nowhere near this conflagration because I was away on holiday.

Whether we are running for our lives, or towards our destinies, we'll do it side by side @niyati.patel10. Through thick and thin, you have been loyal, kind and true. Always there to call out my stupid ideas and pat my back on the great ones. All the inappropriate jokes that only we can handle 🤣 All the fun, adventure, laughter, tears, deep wisdom, your random facts about shit, your calm and gentle soul. I love it all. I pray that this new year brings you an abundance of it all… love, joy and blessings tenfold for being such a blessing to us. Friends are chosen family and I will keep choosing you because #iKneadYou bunny ❤😻🐾 Happy Birthday Niya!
8-4-4 is such a waste. We vote for waititu and then we want to control someone’s right to love. DAMN!!!!! 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
Two of my favorite kneady people! Happy Birthday @niyati.patel10 my darling! We love you to infinity and beyond!♥️♥️♥️
Mtu asikuambie kitu. You are greater than mediocrity. 🙌🙌🙌🙌
And not content with the
small inferno she caused, on these damnable Instagrams, she has decided to post yet another innocuous photograph with a triggering caption:
The year is 2060 and you still gotta hide yo bixch. 😁 #FenaNgomaZakoBadoNiKali.
Cue the emotions to start streaming in.
